In brief: Pain severity?

Many patients with twisted ovaries note that the pain makes it difficult to "laugh, talk, walk, breathe, or be touched in the abdomen".
Ruptured cyst patients note a "moment of severe pain" which often passes after a few hours.A twised ovary requires immediate surgery 100% of the time and a ruptured cyst often does not.
